The main navigation consists of the links at the top of your kvCORE website. There is some degree of customization as far as the words used, or if certain items show or not.
'Use Parent' Button
You will encounter the button labeled 'Use Parent' throughout your website settings. This button takes the value of the setting from the entity above the one you are editing. The hierarchy is as follows:
Company > Office > Team > Agent
For example, if you are a Team Admin, and you are wanting your Team website to use some of the same settings as your Office's website, you'll click 'Use Parent' to take the value from the Office website for those particular settings. This is mainly useful if you modified your website settings and want to return them to what they were before.
An Office website has no parent, so the 'Use Parent' button in that case will reset the setting to the default kvCORE value.

To access your website settings, begin by hovering over the Web & IDX tab from the main navigation. Then select 'Website Settings'.
If you are an Admin, or if you have more than one kvCORE website that you manage, be sure that you select the website you want to edit before proceeding.
Next, click on 'Custom Navigation' on the left.
Changing Menu Labels
The most basic way to customize your navigation is to change the text of the labels. This doesn't change or add what pages the labels link to, it just changes the text.
In your website navigation settings, the very first group of options are navigation labels.
These labels are the ones that show across the top of your kvCORE website.
By default, the labels are named as the setting. So, the default value of 'Search Label' is Search.
Search Label - Links to the /index.php?rtype=grid search page.
Sell Label - Links to /sell.php. Sell Page Info
Finance Label - Links to /finance.php. Lender Page Info
Resources Label - Opens the resources & contact menu. Custom pages are hosted on resources.
Agents Label - Links to the agent roster or agent profile page.
We're Hiring Label - Shows in the 'Agents' menu, links to /recruit.php. Recruiting info.
Using the text box, you can change the text to something else and then click 'Save'.
This setting does not change where the labels point to when clicked. It only changes the text of the label.
Hiding Menu Labels
In your website navigation settings, you'll see the 'hide' toggle switches at the bottom of the custom navigation section.
Resources Tab - The resources menu holds a few pages in it:
Finance Tab - Links to /finance.php. Lender Page Info
We're Hiring Link - Shows in the 'Agents' menu, links to /recruit.php. Recruiting info
Choosing to hide these items (toggle to 'Yes') and then clicking the 'Save' button will remove them from your main navigation. This might be used to create more space in your main navigation for custom pages.
Hiring/Recruiting Page Link
In your website navigation settings, you'll see the 'Hiring Link' setting following the label settings.
If you don't wish to use the built-in recruiting page you can change the link in this field.
To change the link to an external website page, paste the entire https:// link into the field.
To change the link to a custom page you created in kvCORE, first navigate to the custom page. Then, copy the url after your root domain, and paste that into the field.
When pasted including the slash, it will look like this:
Custom Menu Items
Select Custom Pages For Navigation - Choose from your custom page titles the ones that you want to display in your main navigation. You can display a maximum of 4 individual pages.
Select Categories For Navigation - Choose from the categories that your pages are filed under, which ones you want to display in your main navigation. Categories act as 'menus' and will show all pages in that category when you hover over them. You can display a maximum of 2 categories in your main navigation.
Custom Page: 'Get Qualified Now'
Category: 'Trusted Service Providers'
Please Note: You can have a maximum of 4 custom items. For example, 3 pages and 1 menu. Or 2 pages and 2 menus.
